Former porn star Jenna Jameson allegedly used a popular brass knuckle iPhone case when she beat up her assistant at a popular lounge in California over the weekend, according to reports.
Jameson, 39, was charged with battery after allegedly assaulting her assistant, Britney Markham, with the accessory-turned-weapon following accusations she had stolen from her.
Markham claims the mother of two entered a Newport Beach salon on Saturday and began yelling at her hours before planning to celebrate her 39th birthday at Heat Ultra Lounge in Anaheim later that day.
Jameson was celebrating her birthday a bit early on Newport Beach in California on Saturday. However, the celebrations got out of hand and at about 8 p.m. local time, she allegedly assaulted the victim, according to celebrity news website TMZ.
Reports have claimed that after being assaulted, the victim apprehended Jameson and put her under citizen's arrest. Authorities were then called and Jameson was allegedly taken into custody.
Jameson was cited for battery but was later released, according to TMZ.
Rumors had circulated that Jameson was due to attend the Heat Ultra Lounge in Orange County on Saturday night for an official birthday bash, however, after the allegations of her arrest, it is unclear whether she attended that birthday party in the end.
Jameson's official birthday is April 9, when she turned 39 years old.
According to reports, this is also not the first time Jameson has been arrested. She was also arrested in 2012 for driving under the influence after crashing her car into a light pole. That incident took place in Southern California and led to her being sentenced to three years of informal probation, as well as $340 fine. In addition, the judge ordered her to join a Mothers Against Drunk Driving victims' impact panel.
